I imagine you missed that part.
The question in the OP's original post was whether he should get the 750W XFX PSU or the TX750, and nobody else actually directly answered it with the correct response (that the XFX is better). That was all that I meant. I am not suggesting that your advice was unhelpful, and my comment was not even addressed to you.

might be over the OP budget, but what do people think about the Corsair Gold series?

Good, but not significantly better than the XFX unit and it's quite a bit more expensive.

I have the XFX 850 watts PSU. Really nice. I have to agree that the green "theme" is not for everybody, but it looks great.

Like everybody said, it's a Seasonic M12D -variant, single rail, 72A. I would buy again. I would trust the 750watts version to be as good.

I bought mine because I wanted to Crossfire 5870's, which I haven't done yet (and might never).
Who knows, I might get dual Hd6*** or "hypothetical GTX475s/485s"...down the road!!!

Great PSU...

There's no "bugger". The 850W model is an excellent PSU in every way.

Except not, ahem. Go back and read my posts, since I already explained this. Your failure to understand the actual problem or how insignificant it really is does not make the PSU a bad one.

You do not understand the problem. There is protection and the PSU will not die if it is overloaded. It takes a very specific set of circumstances for the PSU to fail, and the chances of that actually happening to someone, even if they do overload the PSU, is almost nonexistent, especially in North America. So again, since you do not understand what the actual problem is, you have no business criticizing the PSU based on it.
